Fall has arrived here in Portland and I know I am feeling the gloomy and gray, but curiously creative and productive new moon energy.
As can be typical of Pacific Northwest fall, the natural environment promises to swing wildly this month, from gloomy to 70-degree reminder-of-summer days and, perhaps also in reflection of the recently (publicly) surfaced tragedies of our world, I am feeling the dramatic swings in my body and heart.
My emotions are in flux, the only constant, it seems, being that they are INTENSE AF.
Whether you’re feeling the urge to scream at the top of your lungs, or hide under the covers, or stand in the rain and cry, or stand for hours in full sunlight, I hope this DRAMA playlist matches what’s in your heart sometime this month.
Also, yes, this is a heavily Janelle Monae and J Lo tracklist. Obviously.
You can access the playlist on our spotify and see the tracklist below:

We hope you will consider supporting us: DONATE TODAY.
Be honest to yourself about what you want: out of life, to eat, to feel, to do in this world. Honor whatever it is, without judgment. Give yourself whatever it is you need. This is a process that takes time. It is the process of getting to know yourself, getting to know your body – without judgments or assumptions – learning to let all the parts of you be what they are.
Face them, hear them, know them, and find peace in letting them be.
Many of us work against ourselves – denying us pleasure, fulfillment, and fullness. This is no way to find peace. We are working for peace within our bodies and ourselves to reconnect us to our power center. We are learning how to listen to ourselves and honor our needs and desires.
Be kind, be gentle, be love, be open.
Enjoy your body.
